It's finally published! And it's here!

A surreal moment opening the smooth brown box tossed on my doorstep. Inside, pieces of me. My heart, my life and my work.

I wrote about the book project I was involved with a while back and had every intention of posting this earlier...but life gets in the way. Not a new story from my mouth. ;)

Incredibly grateful to work with author Jillian Amodio and Griff Hanning at CausePub, having my cover design and short story part of this very special book.

Filled with forty inspirational stories on motherhood (and quotes and funny kid sayings), it's a book that touches the heart of anyone who reads it. It just can't be helped. I don't know about you, but I confess I'm not a big reader unless it pertains to something I'm needing to learn. I simply always need more time in the day. The beautiful stories in here, however, are quick reads...perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee (or tea, my latest obsession) and reading a couple of stories at a time. So good though, you might just find yourself lingering a while.

This one's mine. I bet you could've figured that out, though. ;)

Five pages of my words. My story. My most intimate thoughts and experiences. It's ridiculously personal. Kind of can't believe I put it all out there. ;)

My favorite part? The little quote of humorous perfection on the page following my story.

"Mothers are all slightly insane." - J.D. Salinger. I'll try not to take that quote personally, as if it were hand selected for me, but I confess: It's true. It's true. ;)

The book can be purchased online at:

Causepub Publishing: http://causepub.com/new-life-within/

Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/New-Life-Within-Babies-Stories/dp/0989813924/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1387462464&sr=8-1&keywords=new+life+within+jillian+amodio

Barnes & Noble: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/new-life-within-mccracken-amie/1118202646?ean=9780989813938

A portion of the book proceeds supports pro-life organizations serving women who find themselves in crisis pregnancies and empowers them to choose life by providing medical care and even housing if needed.

A source of inspiration and hope, this book would make your heart (and night stand) happy or make a much more treasured baby shower gift than a pack of bottles and wash cloths. ;)

Have I sold you on it yet? I'm just a little bit passionate about it. Combining my love for photography, graphic design, writing (with definite nuggets of humor) AND helping women and babies...I think that pretty much sums up my reasons.

Wait.

Checking.

Yep.
